Answer :

At the end, I ask them what makes them come to work everyday or something cheesy like that. Most importantly I just ask something. It’s terrible when they give you the opportunity to ask and you’ve got nothing. If it goes REALLY well, ask them what that enchanting scent they’re wearing is.
